Purpose-built Taxi Trial: Final review and recommendations
In December 2013, a four year trial of Purpose-Built Taxi (PBT) vehicles in the Perth Taxi Control Area commenced. The objective of the PBT trial was to assess whether a purpose-built vehicle was better placed than a standard taxi vehicle to overcome taxi-specific safety issues such as driver and passenger assaults.
